Saturday, September 28, 2013 Ages: Adults & older teens; kids 10-15 years old may work on projects with a parent or guardian 10:00-3:00 p.m. Free volunteer opportunity Be part of a nation-wide event and help get our trails, paths, fields, and woods ready for visitors. Tasks may include removing invasives, weeding, putting native plants into place, trail maintenance & cleanup, and work to improve our natural play areas. Volunteers will arrive beginning at 9:30 a.m. and we'll be working from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. - shifts are available for morning only, afternoon only, or all day. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a lunch - we'll be offering some behind-the-scenes peeks at our critters and raptors at lunchtime and between shifts.
Please wear long pants, closed toe shoes and dress for the weather. Bring gardening tools if you have them - we'll need rakes, shovels, trowels, brooms, and loppers. You may want to bring gardening gloves as well, but we also have some that we can share for the day.
